To quote those two great 20th century philosophers, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards: “You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you might find
Well you get what you need”
The sky looked less than promising as I left the house yesterday morning. A regular refrain here at SGNP. But as above, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Sure enough, the clouds in the east created a thin but obstructive shield against the sun which did not pop into view until a while after it rose. But as often happens, there was some nice light to the north. This is a view of the side of Rattlesnake Hill in New Salem with some nice color caught by the higher clouds. It was hard to resist so I didn’t.
I am not sure this will be a regular thing, but I decided to post this as it would appear in my framing style. The break between the double matting is a little darker here than it really is as I am experimenting with different shades to show that digitally. Probably too dark so I’ll lighten the next time.
